Re: “Hate Crime Training for Police Is Often Inadequate, Sometimes Nonexistent

There is no such thing as a "hate crime". A black man harms a white woman, or the same black man harms a Chinese man. There is no difference. Harm was done and the person who committed the harm needs to be brought to justice. Only idiots, and those who are truly racist and bigoted, will try and make the harming of one person worse than the harming of another. Hate Crime labeling is nothing but moral deception and the creation of "protected" classes of people which will lead to abuses of class.

Re: “One Officer, Scores of Tickets and a Familiar Racial Disparity

I am appalled. Some folks feel empowered by Mr. Trump's Election and behave accordingly. Facts verified by credible third-party reporting agencies. I am tired of racism, criticism based upon religious beliefs or sexual orientation. We are all humans and we are all different. That is exactly how the Good Lord intended us to be. I've read the Bible many times. I've translated portions of Ancient Greek and Ancient Hebrew. And no where, absolutely no where, do I find any statements whatsoever by the Good Lord advocating such terrible behavior. I do read the Good Lord advising us to love the Father with our whole heart and soul, and then to love one another in the same fashion. No footnotes. No exceptions. No qualifiers. Each and every one of us has an obligation to treat each other as we wish to be treated. This is so basic that even Trumpettes and current Republicans should be able to understand as the wording confines itself to their comprehension level----single syllable words.
